After her parents get divorced, Ann Uekusa and her mother move from Tokyo to rural Shimane. Accustomed to the anonymity of city living, Ann can't get used to the almost overbearing kindness of the people in her mother's hometown. But when personal tragedy strikes, Ann discovers how much she needs that kindness.
Another favorite series of mine! Ignore the description on the back of the manga - it doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of what this series is about. Sand Chronicles tracks the lives of four friends as they grow from children into adulthood, how they grow apart and come back together time and time again. It's not overdramatic, it's not wild. It's real. I can't even begin to say how many times I paused while reading and thought to myself, "I remember feeling that way when I was that age." Hinako Ashiahara beautifully captured all the struggles and uncertainty of growing up. You really get a strong feel for each of the main characters. The art is lovely and compliments the soft, if somewhat meloncholy, feel to the story. This is a series that I have already read a few times after having it for just over a year or so, and will definitely reread over and over.
This was one of my favorite series :) I'm not going to give a really in depth summary, but the it basicallt revolves around the troubles of a couple (girl and boy) who were seperated. I really love the pure love between the two main characters, it's beautiful. This is such a bad review, sorry :P
This is literally my favorite manga series of all time. Everything about it so realistic, moving, emotional, heart wrenching, and relatable. Especially how they show serious issues including divorce, mental health, suicide, relationships, and family issues. I really love characters because of how realistic, relatable, and complex along with distinct personalities.
